Durham Constabulary

Durham Constabulary’s patch is a varied one, with large areas of rural farmland combined with a few large towns.

The HonestJohn.co.uk Car Crime Census only received limited data relating to car crime in this region, and there’s no details relating to the average crime rate or any information to suggest which make of cars were targeted.

Our crime map shows very little in the way of car crime in County Durham, with Peterlee in the east showing the biggest ration of car crime. The town’s central postcode recorded 170 offences per 10,000 cars, with the Hordon district showing the most criminal activity.

Darlington also recorded above average car crime, with 168 offences per 10,000 cars.

Consisting mostly of rural areas, County Durham shows relatively little crime elsewhere, although Durham’s Gilesgate area shows a number of hotspots on our crime map.

The safest area in Durham Constabulary’s district is Bernard Castle; the market town reported 38 offences per 10,000 cars between 2011-2012.
